Obtain the user SID with JCIFs/NTLM?


After authenticating an user via NTLM, how can I obtain the SID from the User, not the SID from the Domain?

Note the code snippet. I can obtain the Domain SID from the NtlmPasswordAuthentication object but I cannot get the current user domain SID which is what I would like to get to fetch all the group SIDs related to it.

Thanks in advance.

try {
			UniAddress myDomain = getPrimaryDomain(ip);
			NTLMAuth = new NtlmPasswordAuthentication(domainName,userName,password);
			SmbSession.logon(myDomain, NTLMAuth);
			// after loging in, here's how to get the SID for the Domain
                       jcifs.smb.SID mySid = jcifs.smb.SID.getServerSid(hostName, NTLMAuth);
                      // this returns something like 
                      // Sid Domain SID: S-1-5-21-796745780-2711697408-451074171
                      // trying to resolve SIDs this way DOES NOT work
                      SID[] sids = new SID[10];
			sids[0] = mySid; // assigns domain SID???
			jcifs.smb.SID.resolveSids(hostName, NTLMAuth, sids);
			for (int i = 0; i < sids.length; i++ ) {
				System.out.println("Sids["+i+"] Type: " +sids[i].getType());
		} catch (SmbException smbe) {
			System.out.println("Failed to Authenticate: "+smbe.getMessage()+" NTStatus: "+smbe.getNtStatus());
		} catch (Exception e) {
			System.out.println("Failed to Authenticate: "+e.getMessage());
